A deep dive into literacy

Greg Whitby chats to Catherine Jean-Louis, a Year 2 teacher at St Oliver's Primary in Harris Park, Sydney, about her school's approach to teaching literacy.

Here, Jean-Louis discusses how using learning intentions and success criteria has focused what the teachers need to teach and helped the children know exactly what they need to do.


Do your students know their goals for each lesson, or what they need to do to be successful?

Think about a time when you have planned lessons collaboratively with colleagues: What did they bring to the process? How did it help you in your own teaching?
